ReachMORE Tour launched by the Missouri Department of Agriculture


Director of Agriculture Chris Chinn and the leadership team from the Missouri Department of Agriculture announced tour dates for the second ReachMORE Tour. Launched for the first time in 2017, the ReachMORE Tour will return to connect the Department’s decision makers with farmers, ranchers, agribusiness leaders and citizens directly.

“We want to be sure that when you call the team here at the Missouri Department of Agriculture, you have a face with the name you are calling,” said Director Chinn. “We lean more on our farmers and ranchers for feedback today than we ever have before. It’s important to us that we reach out to let our producers know who is working for them in Jefferson City and how they can help us serve them better.”

Director Chinn, Deputy Director Chris Klenklen and leaders of the Department’s five divisions will be touring the state to introduce themselves, visit with constituents, share important updates related to the Department’s MORE Strategic Vision and gather feedback on how they can better serve Missouri agriculture.

During the 2019-2020 ReachMORE Tour, the Department will be sending representatives to the following meetings:

  • Dec. 2, 2019 – Soil & Water Districts Commission Meeting
  • Dec. 3, 2019 – MFA Annual Meeting
